The other Bowery of New York City

Just like its namesake in lower Manhattan, the Bowery at Coney Island was once a long stretch of dance halls, bars, cheap hotels, and bawdy theaters. Built in the 1880s, it spanned West 10th Street to West 16th and was considered the slummiest part of Coney Island.

But hey, that’s where the fun probably was.
